Manic Monday...The Word is "CHIP"



(Many thanks to Morgen for this meme!!)

Ah, the NCAA Sweet Sixteen has evaded Virginia Commonwealth University. After beating Duke on Thursday, they entered the second round in their game against #3 seed Pittsburgh on Saturday evening. But the Sweet Sixteen was not meant to be. Down 41-26 at the half, VCU managed to CHIP away at Pittsburgh and tied the game 67-all with 1:42 left. When the buzzer sounded, the score was 69-69 and thus began the heart-wrenching OT for both VCU and Pittsburgh fans alike. In the end, Pitt prevailed and ultimately recovered after blowing a 19 point lead in the second half. My Rams are coming home, but not before making their name well known in the world of college basketball - a world that more often than not craves a Cinderella team. VCU, unfortunately, dropped their glass slipper in Buffalo and there was no one there to pick it up.

from CBS SportsLine.com posted a great story about VCU's trip to the NCAA...take a look if you get a chance.
